Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamtig Very Helpful for me
Interesting the extreme reviews. I think it is definitely suitable for the older gardener. I am beseiged with dandelions and usually they just snap off. This really works on the little horrors. I am arthritic and not very strong and I am happy with it.

I bought this product some time ago and did not use it. Tried it out and was not happy, on dandelions it was ok anything else it was terrible. I would not recommend this product

Weeding without the back ache! Great tool even my young son can use it. Sometimes a little tricky to get the weed from the weeder into the garden waste ............ that's because our weeds are so big! This won't happen in the future they'll be out of the ground as soon as we spot them! I've seen this many times on QVC and managed to secure one at last - so please I did!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ostara Disappointing results
The quality of this product is good. Strong handle and metal parts. (I have given two stars because of patchy results from the product.)
However, it really only extracts young dandelions with a short root. NB: The demonstrations always shows 'planted' weeds being extracted. I have looked at a similar product made by a well know garden tool manufacturer and its prongs are longer and thinner so it might be more effective at extracting the long tap root of dandelions especially those growing in awkward places.
Like previous reviewers I too have found that large chunks of soil are extracted which clings to the prongs. I then have to clear the prongs and extract the weed and then replace the soil plug back into the lawn.
With a little bit of tweaking this would be an excellent gardening tool.
